When food shelter and clothing decide they feel like sh** today, then they make sure you feel the same sentiment grinding deep into your bones. This single is one of their recent masterpieces of industrial rocktronica, singleminded in mood and delivery. Watch out for that dog!
PORTA is Raymund “Rann” Golamco (formerly of DRIP) on guitars and vocals, and Emorej on everything else. Porta started off as a side project of songwriter Rann. He wrote the songs on a 4-track cassette recorder and distributed it to his musician friends to mangle and remix as they saw fit. This then is but one offering of the results, with sample manipulator Emorej taking rhythmic helm of these songs and turning them into an alluring mixture of funky, Bono Vox-like vocals, Jon Spencer Blues explosive guitars and rockin’ drumloops.
